Works about this Work

Metaphors of Monstrosity : The Werewolf as Disability and Illness in Harry Potter and Jatta Roslyn Weaver , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Papers : Explorations Into Children's Literature , vol. 20 no. 2 2010; (p. 70-82)
'The werewolf is an enduringly popular figure in fantasy literature and film. Although traditionally an image of horror and fear, the werewolf more often in modern texts occupies a place of difference and exclusion. This paper explores the idea of the werewolf as representative of disability and illness in two children's fantasy works from the UK and Australia: JK Rowling's Harry Potter series (1997-2007) and Jenny Hale's Jatta (2009). This paper investigates whether these associations between the werewolf and disability are troubling and problematic, or whether the metaphor of the werewolf provides alternative, powerful expressions of disability and illness.'
